Description

Our next session is approaching rapidly, given the Christmas break, so we look forward to seeing you all in just under two weeks on Wednesday 9th December, 3-4pm, Trent C5, for Sam La Vedrine’s session on 'The Theory-Practice of an Open World: An Introduction to the Trialectic of Kenneth White's Geopoetics'. Sam has provided three texts by Kenneth White, and a supplementary text by Cairns Craig should you want to delve even further into the topic:

  • 'A Fundamental Project' from Ideas of Order at Cape Wrath (2013) pp. 77-98
  • 'The Dancing Cranes' from Across the Territories (2004) pp. 8-19
  • Poems from Open World: The Collected Poems 1960-2000 (2003) pp. 2-35
  • Kenneth White', a critical essay by Cairns Craig from The Edinburgh Companion to Contemporary Scottish Poetry (2009) pp. 154-171

As usual, these readings will be circulated to those on the mailing list in advance of the session.

We have C5 booked until 5pm so we hope you will join us after the session for mince pies and some festive socialising too! All staff and students welcome!
